What we do
The ReCov Program is a 12 week tailored allied health-led program. It aims to help people with any ongoing COVID symptoms after their infectious period is over.
After their initial assessment, we work with patients to develop a comprehensive care plan to best cater to their symptoms.
Services that may be involved in patient care include:
- Clinical and neuro psychology
- Social work
- Occupational therapy
- Music therapy
- Exercise physiology
- Rehabilitation medicine
Who can use our service
The ReCov Program is not able to accept referrals for patients:
- Who are not able to actively participate in therapy
- Whose symptoms are not primarily attributable to COVID-19
- Already undergoing therapy elsewhere for COVID-19 symptoms
Patients who are outside the RMH catchment may be offered a Telehealth consultation if there are no local services in their area.
All GP referrals for the ReCov Program should be faxed to Allied Health on (03) 9342 8440, clearly stating the ReCov Program or Allied Health COVID-19 Service.
Ensure the patients COVID-19 infection date, vaccination status, reason for referral, previous treatment and contact details are included.
Any referrals for exercise physiology or physiotherapy should clearly state that the patient is medically appropriate for exercise.
For any queries about the ReCov Program and eligibility, contact the ReCov Program.
HealthPathways Melbourne provides guidance on best practice assessment and management of common medical conditions, including when and where to refer patients.
